The latest rumble of a rumor has an overflight of the milling grounds in the N. Pacific with schools of fish "larger than any we've seen in 20 years." This observation was supposedly made by one of the fisheries groups. Dunno if it's true, but reports have silvers schooling off Silver King and reports of humpies being snagged by guys jigging for bottomfish there.
I can see those silvers in the kelp right now: pop, pop, swoosh!
It makes me wish I wasn't going to be gone for 10 days in August, but since part of that will involve reds and yellowfins on flies, I guess I can do it. But come September...
